Undergraduate Education. The Study of Education at Stanford. Report to the University.
Stanford Univ., CA.
This report, the second in a series of ten, was prepared by the Steering Committee, the Study of Education at Stanford. The series, based on the concept that education should be a continuous process of discovery throughout life, sets forth recommendations for strengthening the academic enterprise at Stanford University. This report concentrates on the undergraduate curriculum. The General Studies Program is seen as lagging behind the pace of rapid change experienced by the university and its students since the Program's inception in 1956. Perceiving discrepancies between the general educational ideal and the institutional reality, the Steering Committee advocates a transitional set of university-wide prescription that would help to resolve some of the differences. Sixteen recommendations propose changes in curricular programs and requirements. Another 14 deal with academic operation: the calendar and schedule, courses and credit, and grades and examinations. This second set of recommendations repudiate some modern, restrictive practices and embody older traditions of higher learning that facilitate educational objectives.
